dont connect em

break em apart

when you connect em you ground it (on most mopeds) just insulate each end apart, i did that to my honda when i lost the key

I think its called a sundiro. i bought it at a swap meet and didn't make the greatest purchase cuz i didn't know what i was doin then.

can anyone put that in laymans terms, ive had my ped down here in my garage for ages, lost both keys, and the garage say they will charge me

Re: hotwire

my ignition switch has 4 wires. Two get connected and two get disconnected when the key turns..

At first i didnt have a key and the key-switch was ruined anyway, so all i did was remove the whole switch body (from the headlight on a Honda PA50) and separate the two sections of the switch.

The front, metal key-section clips to the plastic rear wiring section. It falls apart into the two sections.

Then i turned the rear wiring section to the "ON" position with a screwdriver and stuck it back into the headlight.. The bike was ON all the time. I didn't need to know what the wires actually did.

Later on i found an ignition with a key on a parts bike from the junkyard.. nice..

You could take the ped to a locksmith may cost up to 89-90$ Yes, they pick it to remove barrel I observed how he did it on a Puch which I had bought w/h keys, making a new key is very time consuming OR you can drill out the entire cylinder and locking pin falls out to unlock fork. I am not clear if you had a key operated kill switch you could replace that with a 10$ aftermarket one.
